Arrow EMU Racing MR015 to MR02 Front Track Conversion

I have always preferred the transition response and rotation through the corner on the MR015 chassis more than the MR02. The MR015 may have a higher center of gravity, but the mass is more centralized.

What cripples the MR015 chassis even more, is that if you want to use a wider body, you have to use wide offset wheels. Which increases scrub; which reduces the steering response.

I have wondered how the MR015 would feel with the MR02 track width. So I tried a few PN MR02 tower bars on a modified MR015. I liked what I felt, a lot. The car was very stable, but rotated into and out of the corner better than a similarly setup MR02 with the same body.

I feel that the MR015 with the MR02 track width, can be just as competitive as an MR02. On low grip tracks especially.

I have had nothing but good comments from the test drivers, and locals that have the part.

The tower bars have 0d camber, and .5d caster.

Compared to a stock MR015 front end




I even have one installed on my Road Course Nascar. I did narrow the front wheels and tires a little

I cant seem to edit the post...
These are available now at Reflex Racing:
http://www.reflexracing.net/proddetail.asp?prod=EMU015R

They are also available at all three of the local NYC Mini-Z tracks/shops.
Action RC Speedway
NYRC Super Raceway
Maj's Hobby Shop (MHS)

I will not be selling these individually, if you would like one you are better off getting one from Reflex. If you are interested in 10 or more, you can contact me directly for a discount.
